"People add more free time on their hands and are taking on these home projects of Installing their own pool for the time being plans a Disney world or canceled their community pool. Their neighborhood pool is out of commission this summer because of the virus, so there you gotta distract the kids some way. Patrick Thomas of The Wall Street Journal. On trending above ground pools and why some owners are getting into hot water. Scientists have warned of a pandemic for decades. Yet when Covad 19 arrived, the world had few resource is and little understanding. Betsy McKay, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal, has done a deep dive on the reasons why Betsy. What did you do here? Well, we went back. You know more than 20 years to look at basically how the threat of a pandemic and certainly the threat of epidemics. Has grown over the years and you know they were there had been warnings going back for decades. Now ever since. You know some of these new viruses, most of which come from animals. Charitably emerging. But we kept going from epidemic epidemic and making a few changes along the way, but not really taking a comprehensive approach and doing everything you need to do to prevent situation like the one we're in. So why is it that we wind up being reactive all the time? It seems and not proactive. Um, well, that's a philosophical and a psychological Christian. In addition to policy questions in a part of it of human nature, right, it You know, it's hard to imagine what could happen, but but on a policy level, it's very hard to get government. And how political leaders scientific leaders to commit. Um, money and time to a high consequence, low probability events as they call it, You know that will happen is likely to happen sometime. You just don't know when and the likelihood of that happening is Is it any given time is low, so people? It's something you can push off until tomorrow. Signified. See McKay, senior writer at The Wall Street Journal. She's written a piece entitled A Deadly Corona virus was inevitable. Why was no one ready? Some of the other factors you put together here to about funding warning systems, the role of the World Health Organization, China's communication, I'd explain some of that. Well, you know. One problem is that as a globe, we never have really figured out how to go on an international level, prevent and then and Uh, respond to epidemics alone for health organization is the organization that does that, But they're way underfunded. I mean, like Wayne 100 most of the money in their budget. Is earmarked for specific project. Polio eradication is a big one. And a lot of the polio work does help build help systems which also help you, you know, detective, the other passages, so there's crossover but essentially There's never been a union nations coming together and working together and also, you know. Ah. A lot of this prepared just has to be done by the national government. But again, they're all individually under pressure. You know, they have budgets to manage a lot of needs. You know if you've got a big Ah, Hurricane disaster to respond to right now, versus the the threat of Ah sort of nebulous of a pandemic happening sometime. Where's your money going to go and not just keep happening over and over? She's alright. So a cz we all know and believe at this point. I believe this won't be our last pandemic. So what about next time? I know there are lessons learned here. But do we put them to use and try to somehow prepare What's the big question, isn't it? I mean, some people say you know what Now the world has learned if he will never make this mistake again, um as, uh, as a partial sceptic or sometimes skeptic, I wonder You know, when push comes to show way certainly will be more than we've done. But what we do enough, um You know it. It really takes changing minds, said a lot of people I have spoken with who were in government and leave these efforts have said, you really need to start Viewing. Um, epidemic emerging disease as as akin to a military sweat and you need to prepare. Or them in that way, so not sporadic funding. Really need to invest in this as a entry would have a national security issue. Not kind of a side scientific issue and think. Well, come along as they come along. It's really like war. So when you look at it that way, you know we certainly have a long way. Go. The other thing is month of the the world of Pandemic Preparedness has been focused on a flu pandemic, preparing for a flu pandemic. And again much of that work. Those prepare you for any kind of pandemic. So so this is actually happening right under our nose weren't We weren't Putting the money into it that we needed to put into to fully understand the extent of the problem. Thanks. Betsy.

"Staycation worthy, But not everybody loves that creativity. It's a story by Patrick Thomas, reporter at The Wall Street Journal. Patrick What's this about people are what theirs. Less entertainment this summer, and people have more free time on their hands and are taking on these home projects of installing their own pool for the time being. Plans Toe Disney World or cancelled. Maybe their community pool. Their neighborhood pool is out of commission this summer because of the virus, so there needs you gotta distract the kids some way people still working from home. You've got to give them something to do so. People are looking to these pools for at least some sort of entertainment. Keep the kids of the family occupied during this time, all right? Seems like a reasonable idea. However, as you point out, they have become a flash point. Among at a minimum art neighbors. Town officials Homeowner's association's what's happening on that front. That's true. Ah, neighbors view them as basically an eyesore. Homeowners associations are not a big fan of the pools. They say they Diminished property values, especially if they're not taken down right away. Some the homeowner's associations have been more lenient, saying, Look, it's an inflatable pool. Take it down, Hide it, So we want to look at it, then that's OK. But for the most part They require. Neighbors just aren't very keen on the idea of having these above ground pools that they could be louder. They could have allowed stereos. Sometimes they have pump systems that You know, one of the in ground pool you have your pumps are for the most part buried or they're covered there alongside the house above. Ground pools are a little different but noisy neighbors on the biggest fan of them, and there is 11 neighborhood. We talked, Tio Their houses are a little bit closer together, and they're concerned that an above ground pool allow you to see in each other's houses. I hadn't heard that before, but I guess there's a privacy concern there. Wow. So that was interesting and You know, generally on a personal side. I talked to my mother about the story yesterday, and she said she wouldn't want to see an above ground pool in her neighbor's house. So I guess it's a real concern. We're speaking with Patrick Thomas, reporter at The Wall Street Journal. He's got a piece entitled Suburbia is awash in above ground swimming pools, and that has some neighbors in hot water. Explain to because I guess there's Ah, um A distinction to be made, and that's on inflatable pool versus a traditional above ground pool, right? The employee inflatable egotist.

"I I'm no there was no way. Someone was going to sit there and be like, okay now, tell me how this would, you know, just I'm worried that it isn't happening now either. Yeah. I don't know as people like human people. How we grow as people if we don't take a second to like child alert things that we honestly don't. Yeah. People are tough. It's tough my views on this are every volving though. I don't I don't. know. Like, it's 'cause there is another part of me that wants to be like, but we're all we are all human in. There are like certain human principles that carry over. No matter what race you are. And for me, the thing that you're talking about in terms of the that guy. It was like it was inconsistent with him just as a human being. Why would he care so much about his friend that he like takes a rat for him? And then try to force his friend to do something that he knows could either get him killed or in jail. And he's like this close to go into college. It's like that's just an inconsistent human thing to do like to me that was just like that. Right. Great. I hear what you're saying short. I. Yeah. I was just like what do we that? Like that doesn't make any. 'cause then I'm like, well, the why were they ever friends because the only reason the only reason he has loyalty to this friend. It's because he like he took all of the blame for something that they both did. But it's not like he took the blame for something that Sean Patrick Thomas did. And he didn't do they both did it. He just like the whole thing. You know what? I mean. I think sometimes get stitches what I'm saying. Right. So his faulty got caught like they started to strike dam, and like in and also like even when you really think about that story. It kinda doesn't make any sense 'cause they're like, oh, we got split up. And then I was going to get caught. But then he knew that I was going to get caught. So he like punched windows out. So at the cops came and caught me, and I'm like what like how did he know that you were going to get caught? Where were you? Where was where was he at all? How did they almost catch him? And then you know, what I mean like the actual story if you actually think about it like completely this, and it's like such a ne'er it's such like. Because it's the it's the key to holding the whole their whole friendship together. And none of their friendship makes any sense outside of it. But anyway, that's their no actually that is here and there. Great movie. Here's here's the thing that I was thinking about while. I was watching it. Because this this movie came out January twelfth two thousand one. Yep. Right Antos and one and it set in Chicago. Now, the question becomes what ended January fourteenth two thousand and one right? Could've maybe just made this movie just a little bit better. Talking, of course, about the television. Programme Keenan kill it ends January fourteenth two thousand really as. Wow. Yeah. Pulled that was the last time. It was aired January fourteen thousand one kill okay. And I'm saying it was set in Chicago was it, and we're talking about how we have an issue with Sean Patrick Thomas being ten years older than Julia stiles. Cal Mitchell kill what just three years just three years older than she is what it looked like a team. Man has hip hop skills. He wraps through. He probably does a little bit of popping luck recall. Exactly man has skills. You know what I'm talking about? You could have even had keen and come in and play Kenny boy, goofy do then we got two of them. It's like oh snap. The kim. Nicole legacy continues on. Okay. You know? And then he'll just enough. I think he'll was has them. To be like this talking bit. He would have been like urkel memo urkel was actually hit some. That the girls from falling all over the place for kale Mitchell in two thousand one. What is interesting. I don't wanna say like. Did you ever have? No crush on Keleman show up. I had a crush on very interesting individuals. But I'm saying I'm talking about celebrities. Didn't really have a crush on him though. No, no..

"I think so because I think it also comes back to what I said they they made him extremely not oblivious. I think he was aware what was going on. But he didn't allow it to change his mind about how he felt and just I don't know. I think that was earned in my opinion. Here's my thing About. about. Oh, sorry. Go ahead. James? We'll know just I don't think you're you're tripping. I think it's like like dry. It's we had a we we have a very specific problem with this movie. Right. That like like in our minds not enough happened for that to to come up in the movie, but I did like that speech because he it's almost like he is calling out all of the stuff that we have not seen happen to him. Or that we have not seen him have a reaction of not enough not seeing him. Well, he with with the, Malcolm. Malcolm that speed they do have seen him and Malachi Malachi like, oh what you're with this girl. Now, you're you're not gonna you know, you're not going to support me anymore. Like they have that. Defend a lot. Like, oh, this girl know every girl like he he always deflects. But and there's some stuff that we haven't seen for. Sure. Right. But I'll say this, though, the to me would messes up this scene is the fact that Sean Patrick Thomas thirty yourself. Looks like like reminds me like a teacher like her teacher because the thing is the way that he comes at her. I like what he's saying. But he comes out her with such poise and like an assured nece, but I'm like that she seems like an idiot. And so we feel bad for her because we're like because we we relate to her because we just seen all the stuff that happened with her more. So than with him for sure and we've seen all that stuff. And she's also just saying she keeps saying that. She's like, I'm just saying I'm just talking about my feelings. I don't know cushy confusing. She's a seventeen year old girl doesn't get it. But he's a thirty year old, man. What are you talking about this this and this instead of just being like just being like what like what's going on? I thought we were in this together. Like what about that time on a train where we were making out like do know that people like us. So what now matters. Why does it matter? Now, you're confusing me who are you? Stop stop performance. You're saying is that right? Like he's reacting to the thing at that point. Like he is reacting to everything happened. It's like the train the things that have gone on. Right. We've seen. Yeah. Guess we're giving his feelings to the thing. That was good before. Isn't it? Save the last dance to. Yes. There's. There. Anything different was was there was there was still a white woman. Why man? Just you just do it. Another way. This. Let me I'm Google while we do, but. Yeah. So the climax of this movie, we kind of talked about is, you know, it is this thing with malachite like they do break up because of this conversation and. She's going to go to her Juilliard audition without him. And she's like, I just really wanted him to be there. You know? I don't think I could do this without him. And so another theme another like thing that they're exploring this movie is self confidence and stuff like that. So he he is giving herself confidence like he's basically like because he's her significant other. Now, he's like taking place of the mom character who like gave her the confidence of do everything. And now he's giving her the confidence, but she doesn't have him. And so she's doing her thing hurt she nails her ballet stuff. And then they're like, well, of course, we meet again, I trust you have a modern piece. Was honestly I was like oh my God. He his glasses half, dad. He had like the pony tail. Oh my goodness. Oh to rain by doing them Kwami Kwami interest name twelve in this thing shit..

"He he, and and then and then he comes to the house later, and there's that one moment of just the door opens, and he looks at him, and and the she quickly closes the door. And there's a question of if there's a problem or not, right? And like that the fact that it never comes up with her dad was an issue that I had to which like I mean, I know I know that it would be it would probably be stereotypical for the data have a problem with it. And yet I'm not to have a problem with it. But he had nothing to say about. I mean, it's a hard situation because I agree in the sense that you would think that they would have a conversation about it. But it also seems like because the dad 'cause he's a deadbeat dad and wasn't there for her throughout the entire life. Remind like, it seems like they're not having conversations at all about anything. But how interesting is that? Right. How interesting is that? If again, this movie probably wasn't trying to have this conversation. But like say the dad had it, you know, there's that one scene where he's will being home at a certain time right right to and and that's nice, right? Because we get a bit of conflict there. But it's actually not. Mected to the main plot of the of the movie, it's just she was gone. Instead of it being any kind of dialogue of like are you seeing even are you seeing boys? It doesn't have to be. Are you seeing black kids? Right. And then and then it's a complicated dynamic of like, he's he was a deadbeat dad, and maybe he's battling that and wants her to be home at a certain time because he cares about her that way because he squandered his life this whole other way. And like the movie doesn't even have to go into all of that. But had it gone into any of that. I think that would that would have made it even stronger for me. Yeah. I think he was trying to figure out how to be dead because that was the first time that he was dealing with her. And it's you know, when someone's not I have experienced with like, my sperm donor. But. Do things like they don't know. Like how to act because he's like, okay. I'm supposed to be this way. I'm supposed to tell you. You gotta be home at a certain time supposed to do like this. You know? I don't know. Maybe it's so hard to elaborate on those character in that moment. But. Ever tried to give me advice or anything like? Will you be says that when she's like when he tries to yell at her? And she's like, are you kidding me? Like, sure. Sure chickens chance trying to me forever. Don't pretend like you care about me now, and I can understand him just being like, I don't know what to do. Because like even the beginning where he was like, oh, I was like let's go out to eat. And she's like I don't want to. And then he was just like fine that you can find your own food. I guess like like, oh my. Business. Sponsored he you know. Yeah. I mean, I don't disagree with James. I guess it was like, no, I I understand the dynamic of him of them. Not even talking about anything. I will say the. I mean, the character of of of Malachi is is an interesting one because they were they were essentially trying to show this other. Side of Sean, Patrick Thomas, which was hard to buy into because you because of what derives saying like, you're you're trying like in your mind. Think about when this kid was ever like running up on like, my knee, biding, anybody stealing and stuff. And and here's the thing. And I do agree that that is kind of stereotype because like that not kind of it is the idea that everybody living in the hood is like robbing people in like hassle do this. And I'm like that's not true. Like, right. Like Benson insane thing for people to think that like every single teenage boy in living in ghettos are living in like in urban communities are jacking people every day like they had that in their life. Yes. It's happened to some people. That's a real thing that experience, but like not everybody is doing that. There are people who are just going to school trying to go home not trying to get shot. Like, that's like they've picked to extreme characters..

"I was like I feel like this. I know it's it's you know, it's like a team romance kind of drama. There are some moments that are melodramatic. And and the one thing I'll say is that I think Julia stiles really nailed. Like hurts the seventeen year old character. Like, I believe her as a person like so much like I was like, oh, this is a real person. Like one hundred percent. You know, there were like, I guess like certain moments that were like like the really hard moments. She'd like cry about her mom when he's like when she's talking which on Patrick hair Thomas about like just like, you don't know like my mom like it's been hard. Like why why she quit and stuff like certain moments like there? I was like, ooh. Like, I don't know if she had I feel that that was a hard thing for her to to do perform. But I, but in general really really loved her. And then I did like Sean Patrick Thomas. But my only thing was like he felt so much older than a teenager. And I think partly that was because Julia was like really mailing like seventeen like I dunno stand like shoot just do things sometimes own. Oh, my cod is like a little totally like such a. And he was so. He's very maybe. That's the point where he grew up the difference in the two, and I think that is kind of somewhat of the point. But like even Carrie Washington and the food who played Melon Melanie. Malachi like both of them. Did they still had a little bit more? Like youthfulness in them. And I don't know again. Maybe that's just the point because he's supposed to. Everyone's I was a little it threw me off every every now. And then I was like all right Dr. Yeah. Twenty six year old do he's ten years older than she is. Yeah. Yeah. That does make sense. And and it came and it came across and it's not his fault. Like, I think is acting was really good. But it was just like I could just tell that like this high school like high school, you know. Yeah. And and. And it's film had some tough conversations. I don't know. You know, it didn't. I don't think it was trying to give an answer either way. Really? It was just like presenting them. And that was it's I mean, we're gonna have some great talks. But yeah, I liked it James after you, sir. I think I hate it. Wow. I hate this movie. The thing is I remember seeing it when I was younger in theaters thought, I liked it. But this morning this put me in a bad mood and thing is. I don't think it did anything wrong. I just think watching it now as a black man and like just the state of the world. It was something about this movie that just. I don't stay in the world. Now this movie fill in something. Hope you're like I figured out as we talk about this episode, but like something very appropriate of head. It was it was something about it. And just some like is a thing where again is not necessarily this movie. But I think watching it it just made me think about so many other maybe think about the car dash, and it's made me think about like how. There was a time when you know, black people would do the dab dad's just a dance and people thought it was gangs, and they were just like earn people were just going on news. Like, oh, man. I think it's a gang thing you can't do for. But in now like politicians do it like UC the spelling bee a little white doing it non stop in his cool. Now, you know what I mean like watching this movie? I just kept thinking. I just kept thinking the phrase. Oh, that's right, people love black culture. But don't like black people. That's all I kept thinking about. And it's not even like, I think they were very respectful of his movies a hundred percent..
